As a community supporting cross-platform development grew, Flutter stepped strongly into the game, and pushed the boundaries. The native look and feel of the apps and time-efficient development helped it gain popularity quickly in the eyes of big brands.
Flutter is an open-source, cross-platform app development tool. It was introduced by Google in 2017 and declared stable for production in 2018. Perhaps the most prominent Flutter side currently is that it’s gone beyond mobile. Mobile applications built-in Flutter can comply and run in modern browsers. This means that the same code base we write to create Android and iOS apps also creates web apps.
With all mentioned above, let’s dive deeper into the apps developed with Flutter and the big brands behind them.
